I have had numerous minor issues with this player since i got it last june though not enough to return it just those sort of niggles you learn to live with. for instance. Hd sound tracks were definitely better through the analogues than through LPCM HDMI, i wouldnt have expected that. DTS HD MA would play havoc with lip sync if 24fps was switched on. Go figure...? Well yesterday it stopped playing half way through a dreadful film ( In the name of the king) and wouldnt no matter what i tried recognise any blu ray discs. 'Disc cannot be read' was the constant message. DVD & CD can still be played just not Blu ray. Anyway 7 months is a bit lame for a £400 piece of kit to last. It was today delivered to the very clever boys and girls who's mastery of the soldering iron is something to behold. They are due to report back to me in the next 48 hours (as well as to panasonic). Serves me right for being an early adopter of a stand alone........gutted as i still need to know what happens at the end of the film even if it is a crap piece of film making. Gots loads of other films on order as well. Missing her already.
